You will need to actually remember and use much of the material from these courses. If it has been a long time since you took them, then I encourage you to purchase and study the CliffsQuickReview booklets Algebra I , Algebra II , and Geometry , available at www.amazon.com or www.cliffsnotes.com . GE/SJSU Studies Category B4 Note: Courses that meet Areas R, S, and V of SJSU Studies must be taken from three different departments, or distinct academic units. Faculty Web Page and MYSJSU Messaging Copies of the course syllabus and major assignment sheets may be found on my faculty web page accessible through the quick links/faculty web page links on the SJSU home page after the first week of classes. You are responsible for regularly checking with the new messaging system through MySJSU. This will be used for updates, etc. You may not reply to this message, use my email address (above) for questions and concerns. Course Description and Goals Math 12 is the first of three courses designed for prospective elementary and middle school teachers. (The second and third courses, respectively, are Math 105 Concepts in Mathematics, Probability & Statistics and Math 106 Intuitive Geometry.) In each of the three courses, you will explore and develop understanding of mathematical concepts and processes taught at the elementary and middle school levels. In Math 12, in particular, you will study problem solving techniques, numeration systems, the structure of the real number system, and elementary number theory. Throughout the course, you will experience mathematics learning in the way that we want your future students to experience mathematics learning. In addition, you will analyze your learning experiences from the perspective of a future teacher. Technology will be integrated as appropriate. Student Learning Objectives GE/SJSU Studies Learning Outcomes Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to: (1) use mathematical methods to solve quantitative problems, including those presented in verbal form (2) use mathematics to solve real life problems (3) arrive at conclusions based on numerical and graphical data To meet these GE learning objectives you will learn how to use your mathematical knowledge in solving non-routine problems. By learning how to approach problem solving from several different viewpoints, you will gain the skills needed to meet these objectives.
